Reed Sensors Handle HV Apps

Low-cost reed sensors are suitable for a variety of high-voltage surface-mount applications.

Acoustic Gas Leak Detector from Det-Tronics

Detector Electronics Corporation (“Det-Tronics”), Minneapolis, MN, introduces its FlexSonic™ Acoustic Gas Leak Detector, a non-contact gas leak detector that analyzes 24 discrete ultrasonic bands, ignoring nuisance ultrasonic sources. A high-fidelity microphone continuously monitors for the distinct ultrasound emitted by pressurized gas leaks across the widest spectrum of frequencies. Reducing false positives, it can be programmed to ignore background noises, discerning between gas leaks and environmental noises, such as metal-on-metal contact, fans, machinery or vehicles.

Bendable Capacitance Probe from BinMaster

The bendable capacitance probe from BinMaster Level Controls, Lincoln, NE, can be bent to avoid obstructions in a vessel while still allowing adequate probe surface area to confirm the presence or absence of material.

Tank Monitoring System from APG

The Tank Cloud remote tank-level monitoring system from Automation Products Group (APG) Inc., Logan, UT, lets you monitor facilities and processes from anywhere with an Internet connection.

Ultrasonic Level Sensor from Bindicator

The SONO-1000 from Bindicator, a Venture Measurement company, Spartanburg, SC, is a single-tank ultrasonic level sensor that measures bulk solids in vessels up to 30 m high.

Ultrasonic Interface Sensor from Endress+Hauser

The Turbimax CUS71D from Endress+Hauser Inc., Greenwood, IN, is an ultrasonic immersion sensor for interface measurements in processes where suspensions are separated into their liquid and solid components by sedimentation.

Coolant Level Sensor from Gentech

The coolant level sensor from Gentech International Ltd., Girvan, U.K., part of the Measurement Specialties group, uses giant magnetoresistive technology to monitor the coolant level in header tanks in trucks, HGVs, buses, and off-highway vehicles.
